Carlo Ponti Facts
Founded the production company "Ponti-De Laurentiis" together with Dino De Laurentiis, which produced Toto in Color (1953), the first Italian movie in color.

After he had divorced from Giuliana Fiastri in Mexico, he married Sophia Loren in 1957. As the divorce was not legalized in Italy, he was accused of bigamy and his marriage to Loren was annulled in 1962.

Studied law at the University of Milan.
